Here's my entry in the current contest over at Bitten by the Bug. We were to make a card using the colors pink, yellow, blue and green and have a star somewhere. This card is inspired by the song"Catch a Falling Star" ("and put it in your pocket" for those of you too young to remember it. LOL) I had this in my mind as soon as Regina announced the contest but just couldn't find appropriate paper until I came across a 6 x 6 pad of Urban Prairie by Basic Grey. I welded a square from the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge (for the card back) to the cylndr 2 (page 97) from George, the star from Plantin Schoolbook, and the moon and stars from Paper doll Dress Up. Once cut, I trimmed the top of the cylinder to form a pocket shape. Each individual shape was cut at least once again in different prints and popped for dimension. The moon and stars were cuttled with the Swiss dots folder and then cut again so I could cut out each small star individually to pop. I was excited to find jewelled stars at J's in the appropriate colors for accent. The large top star was cut and folded to give it a 3 dimensional shape and attached along the edges with rolled up glue dots. The flourish is from Home Accents cut in both shadow and regular and added between the flat and dimensional stars. I cut another pocket and attached it at the side and bottom edges only to allow the star to fit in it. I fussy cut the lower butterfly from another sheet of the paper, attached it in the center only, and embellished it with a jewelled butterfly on top. More adhesive gems were added to all of the elements for glitz and the entire card was matted with another square of BoBunny dotted card stock.
